Rough Terrain Forklifts: The choice when moving materials off road

Sometimes what seem to be the most simple tasks can prove to be among the most difficult to complete.rough terrain forklift
For instance, moving materials at an off road worksite. Whether it’s carrying pallets of bricks in a material storage yard or transporting 20-foot lengths of pipe on a work site, this seeming simple job can be very difficult if the proper equipment isn’t available
A rough terrain forklift easily and efficiently moves materials at an off road site. The machines are typically built using a tractor loader drive-train, so you have the tractive force needed to work in mud, sand slopes and other challenging underfoot conditions.
Rough terrain forklift users include:

  • Building and specialty trade contractors
  • Energy companies
  • Mining
  • Loggers
  • Lumber yards
  • Sod and turf farmers
  • Salvage specialists and scrap metal

Rough terrain forklifts maneuver more quickly and are less expensive to rent than other types of equipment that transport materials at off road sites. Maneuverability is key in applications such as a salvage yard, where equipment must operate on uneven surfaces around stacks of material.
The machines are available in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models.
When working in mud, sand or in rough terrain, four-wheel drive is the preferred option. Sod growers, for instance, who transport pallets of sod from fields to trucks often choose four-wheel drive to maneuver though muddy fields.
